disable icmp time-exceeded

disable icmp time-exceeded {vlan name}


Disables the generation of ICMP time exceeded messages on one or all VLANs.

Syntax Description

name Specifies a VLAN name.



Usage Guidelines

Disables the generation of an ICMP time exceeded message (type 11) when the TTL field expires during forwarding. IP multicast packets do not trigger ICMP time exceeded messages. If a VLAN is not specified, the command applies to all IP interfaces.

This command only affects the generation of certain ICMP packets. Filtering of ICMP packets usually forwarded by the switch is controlled by the access-list commands.


The following example disables the generation of ICMP time exceeded messages on VLAN "accounting":

disable icmp time-exceeded vlan accounting
